Like a drum brake or disc brake?
Who are the grateful dead? And why do they keep following me?

I was thinking drum brake for looks over function. Talked to Buchanans and might have them build
two custom wheels using my existing hubs because I like the looks of them. Shouldn't even mess
with that until my camper project is finished.
On a side note, got the beast to where it starts first kick every time after replacing a weak coil.
Made a makeshift air filter out of a piece of 1/2 inch foam. Took it out on the street and gave it
full throttle. Of course it sucked the foam right into the carb when I shifted into second. It coughed
once, then eat the foam and treated me to an unexpected wheelie up the street  :o
Those kids walking home from school thought that was really cool, I went home and checked my shorts........

It would be really funny if you found the foam in your shorts!
I'll look around in my garage attic for the RD stuff, I think I can help you out there.

Thanks Rick, that would be great. Give me a call if you find anything.
There's a pretty nice car show at Zack's this Sat. , would be a good excuse
to come up here.

Sounds good! I think my dad is showing a car there, too.
I'll call you.
